The computer guru, Rodrigo came on Saturday afternoon to fix all things not working or messed up on the computer. The list was up to eight items and I do make a list these days because otherwise it would be like going to the doctor and not being able to tell them all the things wrong with you.
On that list for Rodrigo was the fact that I could not find all the photos he had somehow removed from the crappy laptop that crashed shortly after he had supposedly removed all the photos over a period of about four years.
When I asked him where I could find them, he did his magic and downloaded them to Picasa for me.
Thrilled is an understatement to describe my joy at seeing all these old photos. Many great memories.
That is the only bad thing about having a digital camera, you can't leaf through hard copies as I used to do and shuffle them into stacks to copy etc. It's there on the computer or not.
After a little over an hour with everything fixed, I paid him his requested amount 250 pesos, about $15USD and off he went. I usually need to call him about once a year.
One of the photos just made me squeal with delight. It was the photo taken in Colorado of Matilda and
Sebastian when he was two months old. Here it is.
And, here are two photos taken by a friend from Texas when she was visiting just a few weeks ago.
And, with the ever present Mojigangas that lurk in the jardin during the weekends. If you click on the photos, you can see the slit in the skirt where the man wearing the costume can see out! It's a fun thing.
I was reflecting while looking at the photo of Mati and Seb in Colorado that in no way could I have ever
imagined that they would be living in San Miguel some day. John so loved, and still does, love Colorado.
It is definitely his kind of place. But, destiny intervened and brought them back here where Matilda was
born. Glory days!
Life certainly can be a surprise, can't it?
